Despite facing a lot of troubles, Kamal Hassan starrer Vishwaroopam has reached the 100 crore club. It is said to be the third Tamil film after Rajinikanth's Endhiran - The Robot and Vijay's Thuppakki to cross the rare feat.
The movie has crossed Rs 100 crore mark and heading towards setting a new bench mark at Tamil Box Office. Rahul Bose, who has played the role of baddie in Vishwaroopam, announced the news on Twitter. He wrote, "Just received figures of the all india box office collections of vishwaroopam. 120 crores and counting. Superb! Vishwaroopam's the first film I've been a part of that's made over 100 crores. Congratulatuions to the team and mr haasan especially! (sic)"
Vishwaroopam, which was supposed to release on January 25, hit the screens after facing the wrath of several Muslim groups in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka on January 27. But the film did not face any trouble in Kerala and other parts of India. However, the film was released in Tamil Nadu on February 7 after Kamal Hassan agreed to chop the scenes which hurt the sentiments of Muslim groups.
